Movie Reviews

A strong show gets even stronger
Steven Myers | SF Bay Area | 02/24/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the fourth BGC 2040 DVD, containing episodes 13 through 16. Where the previous episodes were largely individual and episodic (with a glimpse here and there of the larger world), this volume expands the focus and starts to reveal what's going on. The main plot arc, somewhat buried, now clearly predominates. Sylia's mood swings, Mackey's reason for returning to Sylia's life, the origin of the hardsuits, and Mason's obsession with the buried work of Sylia's father--all of these are explained.What's left, you might ask, since there are ten more episodes? Without spoiling anything, as good as this collection is--and continuing the pattern, it's the best so far--the pieces are only now in place for the real conflict. Even if you just casually liked the show up to this point, you will not want to wait for the conclusion. Additionally, on a technical level, the show is much slicker: the animation gets better with later episodes (usually the opposite is true), and those rather cheesy 3D computer graphics effects are gone or nearly so. It's a rare show that consistently improves, as BGC 2040 does. The first disc left me a doubter, but having continued through this point, BGC 2040 is one of my favorites."
Simply put: Wow

"The earlier volumes were good; this one's great.The story begins to open up as we are hit with mysteries, dangers, and revelations. From the word go I was glued to the television, itching for the answers to my questions. I swear, I thought the suspense was going to kill me.This volume doesn't have as much action as the earlier volumes, but it doesn't need it. There's excellent drama here. I especially like how Nene's place seems reversed; in the last volume, Nene was looked down upon, but here, she's the one who becomes disgusted and disappointed. It's an interesting reversal of roles.To sum up, this volume is fantastic. Careful though; you'd better buy volumes 5 and 6 while you're at it, or you'll be left hanging, desperate to find out what happens next. Highly recommended."
The begining of the end.

"This is where the series gets good. You have to see the previous episodes to really appretiate the events that unfold here. The previous episodes were seemingly just that. Episodes. However in the main stories, they were always giving bits and pieces to the puzzle of the main agenda of the story arc. If you've seen the other series before this part, and are wondering if this is worth the buy...then wonder no longer. This is truely where the story, and the action gets good."
